    My eyes too. It looks absolutely un-designed like an old tractor. There are body panels and a "fairing" and someone must have decided on the shape, but they didn't apparently need to make it something it's not.

    2013 yellow model
    Spent a couple hours at the International Motorcycle Show in Chicago last Friday. I think the best looking 2013 model is this yellow one. I really like the black frame and wheels.

    I have to quit looking at this thread... Another sweet KLR

    I like the yellow too. The 2013's will be last years model by the time my truck is paid for, I'm shooting for a NOS one.

    Or green......

    I've been there but I was a good distance from any support. BUT, I pulled out my trusty Leatherman tool, I was back on the trail in no time.
    My other comment, that, for sure is "old school" KLR.
    From your picture,
    #1- Foot peg on the swing arm.
    #2- Shoe brakes
    #3 A real kick starter.
    What year is it?

    I was drooling over the yellow one at the IMS in NYC. I miss my KLR. It'd be a nice street oriented dual sport companion to my much, much better off road G650X.

    Slung my bike from the ceiling with a quasi z-drag, to prep for an install of raising links!

    "Raising links" is not a term one comes across very often on a klr thread:rofl
